When we stock the cigarettes at work, we have those flimsy boxes that the 10 packs of cigarettes come in--any ideas on what to do with them?   I hate to see them go to waste and to take up unnecessary room in the trash can... Huh

I've always wanted to cover a home bar with cigarette packs, or just make one out of them.

You could always trim them up (like take the opened flaps off), reinforce them and make them into like a magazine/mail/etc organizer.

I don't know about the empty cartons, but I always take the foil out of the empty packs to fold small paper cranes with.

Use them to organize your medicine cabinet.  (Don't know about you, but every time I opened the medicine cabinet, all my husband's stuff fell out in an avalanche, so I made little cardboard organizers to keep everything upright).  If you double them up, they should be pretty sturdy.

My dad used the cartons in his desk drawer to organize receipts, bank statements, etc.  He also cut them up and used the cardboard to make templates for drilling holes, jigsaw details, etc.

The individual packs, if they're hard packs, can be used to organize little things that get lost easily (lancets, your collection of cancelled stamps, larger beads, etc. etc.)

I dont smoke but with the little indiv. packs, I thought about making like, rear view mirror decorations with the old "chocolate cig" packs. Thats illegal.. haha,  but still! Maybe you could make some kind of air freshener to hang SOMEWHERE in your car or something. way to go for being resourceful! Cheesy most ppl just would put it in the bailer (sp? lol) Cheesy

Shocked

That came out amazing.

Especially since she had such a wide array of brands.. all the different colors & fonts just made it thattt much better.

I bet the individual boxes would be good for holding pads or tampons in your purse.
